I attended approximately 100 shows between 1/8/79 and 3/29/90, including performances at The Fabulous Fox, Richmond, Merriweather, Red Rocks, Radio City Music Hall, The Spectrum, Portland, and dozens of shows at MSG, Nassau and Hampton, likely many of which all you 80's officionados rave about and consider some of the best of the era.

Of all of these shows I only consider only two performances to be "true gems" those being 5/16/81 and 3/29/90.

Sorry, I just dont consider shows like 5/6/81, 11/10/83, 6/30/85, 11/1/85 or 9/18/87 to be "true gems" and I think that 6/28/85 sucked.

In fact I wish I could have all the time and money I wasted traveling around to all those stinkers. But thats just my opinion.

Happy holidays everyone, including all you 80's zealots!

3-29-90 was the best show that I saw live. It's hard for me to say which (if any) shows were true gems as I never attended any shows from my favorite eras. 6-17-91 & 7-7-89 are highly regarded shows but probably not all timers. Happy Holidays Cliff! Just dont go bashing my 2 favorite shows 3-9-81 and 6-27-85.

I attended both 3-9-81 and 6-27-85 as well, unfortunately I dont regard either as highly as you. To each his own, peace!

Hey Billy, I'm with ya on the 3/9/81 show - I was there and possibly stepped on Cliff's toes or elbowed him in the side whilst in a spaztic dancing frenzy. This may have contributed to Cliff's less than pleasant experience of this high powered show. I absolutely love the "Feel Like a Stranger" opener.

I can't believe Cliff wasted $12.50 on this show

Good catch - we couldn't get real tickets to Radio City so opted for the Simulcast - pretty funny - well we had a good time at least . . .hahahah

Ouch

I rarely paid over $20 for a show once or twice $30. My friend was very organized and almost always got us tickets from the box office or ticketron.

Hey JG, I am green with envy over those ticket stubs. You caught some great shows. I see you saw Jerry at Hofstra in 1981, that must have been a great show. One of my favorite Jerry tapes is from the next day in Glassboro NJ. Saratoga in 1983 was a great show...still waiting for a decent copy to show up. Which Nassau show did you see in 1979? Hopefully it was 1-10-79.

11/2/79 at Nassau - a hidden gem overshadowed by the Cape shows and the (I think overrated) Halloween show.

I have an MP3 of the JGB 81 show. Send me an e-mail and I could mail you a copy.

I forgot about the fall shows there. 10/31/79 is my favorite from that run. Thanks for the offer on the cd but I've got so much Jerry to listen to right now.
